The Young and Lonely King charts the life of Prince Charles, Duke of Albany, an embattled boy who was baptised in anticipation of an early death. The result is a historical tale that is steeped in tragedy as Jane Lane brings to life a man masked in misery. From the death of his brother, Henry, which left him lonely, vulnerable and under the influence of Buckingham, to his disastrous marriage with Henrietta Maria, a spoilt, capricious woman, this is a very human tale about a very human king.Biografía del autor:
